Out of an awareness of their identity as humans created in God’s image, your child will begin to see all people on earth as created in that image.
Lipscomb Academy Missions benefits from the expertise and resources of Lipscomb University, which typically coordinates more than 500 students per year participating in more than 50 trips around the globe. Tapping into the university’s resources, allows us to provide more affordable travel options, risk insurance, seasoned team leaders, strong partnerships with organizations around the world and valuable perspective on how each trip can transform your child’s social existence in the world into an expression of Christ’s transforming work in every place where relationships exist.
Our goal is to provide high quality experiences for our students while also making a meaningful impact for our host partners. Lipscomb Academy Missions works to provide a wide variety of service opportunities so that our students can use their God-given gifts in different ways through our program.
As students embark on our trips, they partake in a range of types of mission work. From building homes and renovating classrooms, to running teen retreats & Vacation Bible Schools, to hosting medical clinics, whatever our students may be doing with their hands and feet is an opportunity to be the body of Christ and experience the relational nature of the Gospel.
"When I went on my first mission trip to Baja I was not really sure what I was expecting but I can say this, I did not think I would grow so close to a group a strangers I barely knew before that week. I thought that the only way I could communicate with the people there would be through translators, but I made so many connections with them just by our actions and I saw Gods work through all the people there and my team. I hope to grow all the relationships I made there when I go back next."Josie KennyLipscomb Academy Student
"Our time with Manna Global Ministries in the Dominican Republic is mutually encouraging for both the Dominican people as well as those of us who serve on the mission team. The relationships that we have built over the last 7+ years continue to grow every year and when we return each spring break it is a blessing to work with some group of young people and are blessed by how God has been alive and working in their lives.
